Chemical Safety Library

The Pistoia Alliance Chemical Safety Library (CSL) is a new open-access platform that streamlines access to hazardous reaction information crowd-sourced from academic, industry and government institutions around the world. Developed and hosted by CAS, the CSL supports laboratory safety by providing tools to:

  • Search for hazardous reaction information by CAS Registry Number®, chemical name, SMILES and more.
  • Contribute new hazardous reaction incident information to the library.
  • Download aggregated information to integrate with internal workflows and knowledge bases.
